Are you getting your 5 a Day?

Spring, and fruit is in season; on the plate and on the catwalk!

Last year’s spring/summer collections saw Stella McCartney favour citrusy flavours, with her skirts and dresses boldly prin

ted with images of oranges and lemons. Its popular reception, with high street favourites Zara and Dorothy Perkins featuring similar pieces of clothing, has lead the recent season’s catwalk to prolong the trend. Started by Miuccia Prada with her banana earrings and continued with Dolce and Gabbana’s pasta earrings and aubergine patterned dress. Fashion is at its most mouth-watering, be it printed on your dress or a shaped accessory.
